Abstract

How likely is it that women end up working in jobs that allow them to be among the top 1%, 10%, 20%, and top third of earners? Drawing on the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS), Teresa Almeida, Erika Brodnock, and Grace Lordan find that Black women – regardless of whether they are from the UK or elsewhere – have the lowest probabilities of being top earners. And UK-born Black women are the most under-represented in the top percentile of incomes, as compared to all other women and men.
